Guv Dan McKee, Lt. Guv Sabina Matos, Home Speaker K. Joseph Shekarchi, Senate President Dominick J. Ruggerio and the Rhode Island Structure will reveal a brand-new $ 20 million grant program to assist Rhode Islanders with real estate, cravings and behavioral health in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis.
The Rhode Island ARPA Assistance Grants Program will provide grants of as much as $150,000 to not-for-profit companies that experienced unfavorable financial effects as an outcome of the pandemic which work to attend to food and real estate insecurity and behavioral health requirements in the state.
The Structure will start accepting applications from nonprofits instantly. This will be the biggest single grant program in the Structure’s 106-year history.
The program was produced in the Guv’s FY 2023 budget plan and authorized by the General Assembly utilizing financing from the $1.1 billion State Fiscal Healing Fund granted to Rhode Island from the American Rescue Strategy Act.
